MELBOURNE | Street artists of Melbourne, here’s a litte something you might be interested in. QV Melbourne is commissioning a piece of artwork for Artemis Lane between Russell Street at Meat Fish Wine. Currently, it’s just a blank concrete wall and they are looking for something more vibrant.
The winning artist will be awarded a grand prize of $5,000, with all paint supplies and art materials to be provided to complete the artwork, spanning 15 metres in length x 2.1 metres in height. With over 40,000 people a day moving through QV, the winning artist’s work will be given significant exposure.
The “#ColourQV” competition calls for a work that incorporates colour and creativity, has an element of interactivity and considers the surrounding environment, with the wall located in a prominent restaurant precinct.
Entries are open until midnight on Sunday 4 September and limited to Melbourne based artists. Three finalists will be notified by 8 September 2016 and offered a finalist fee of $300 each to complete a sketch of their proposed artwork by 14 September 2016. Once the sketches are complete, a poll will be held via the QV Melbourne Facebook page where Melburnians can weigh in and ultimately choose the winning artwork.
Enter #ColourQV by emailing [email protected] with your portfolio (attachments to be no more than 2MB) and contact details. Entries close at midnight on 4 September 2016.
